Beckel still hot: CBS will stand for ‘Communist Bastard Sympathizers’

Liberal Fox News host Bob Beckel wasn’t finished absolutely ripping into CBS over the pro-communist Vietnam episode of “The Amazing Race,” saying he was even “more outraged” then he was the night before.

Beckel, who said Wednesday on “The Five” CBS could “take that show and shove it,” was even more furious and outraged Thursday after getting no comment from CBS.

He slammed CBS executives saying they owed the 850,000 American Vietnam veterans alive today an “amazing big apology” for the disgusting episode that had contestants memorizing a pro-communist song and searching for clues in Hanoi at the wreckage of an American B-52 bomber that was shot down during the war.

He looked straight into the camera and shook his fist, telling CBS:

You guys better apologize. You say you have no comment? How do you have no comment on something as outrageous as that? And I’ll tell you one thing, CBS, which was a great network, you don’t want to become known as the Communist Bastard Sympathizers!”

He urged viewers to “blitz” CBS and demand they apologize to veterans for the anti-American episode.

He also warned CBS he was going to “go after them every day he can” if they don’t apologize.

    Americans of many political philosophies are sick and tired and won't take it anymore.

    First thing I have agreed with you on in a long time. Most of my class members died there and out of a class of 193 we lost more that 60 plus there. May God bless you Bob.

    While I'm willing to give our vets a little latitude on this one, I think that they — and others who were "offended" by the episode — are missing the bigger picture, which unfortunately seems to happen a lot these days and is part of the reason why this country is going downhill. The purpose of the Amazing Race is to show viewers the sites and cultures of other countries. We may not always like what we see, but it's important to see them in order to better appreciate our own country. For example, seeing that Vietnamese children are exposed to Communist propaganda and brainwashing makes me appreciate all that much more our own freedom. The show didn't glorify it in any way–they just presented it as something that happens in Vietnam. I'm sure many Americans think that Communism fell with the Berlin Wall, but this episode reminds us that there still are pockets of it in the world. If this had been presented in a documentary, nobody would have batted an eye. But since most Americans don't watch documentaries, presenting these as part of a highly-rated entertainment show so that more average Americans will see it is nothing but goodness in my opinion. As for the B-52 memorial, it was simply a backdrop to a stopping point on the race where the contestants get their next set of instructions. The memorial was explained by the narrator and while I think that perhaps the contestants could have been required to stop and reflect a bit on its meaning, having it on the show was a helpful reminder to Americans about the war we fought there. Again, that's nothing but goodness in my opinion. I think the outcry over this episode is a case of provincial political correctness gone amok.
